Travel: The Alaskan Cruise

Yes, we did... with a toddler at that.

Okay, with most of my in-laws as well. So, there was a bunch of us on a cruise ship going to Alaska. It cannot get more fun than that.

Our port was in Seattle, which one of my favorite cities. I can stay in Seattle for a long, long time. But that's another story.

I had motion sickness during the first night on the ship. I blame it on my OC-ness to immediately take out our luggages' contents. It was terrible. So, to those going on a cruise, bring lots of motion sickness meds, or the patch (but I hear the patch has some vision-related side effect, so be wary).

The views were breathtaking.

I took this panoramic picture (as with the other photos here in this post), and I swear, Mendelhall Glacier is more magnificent in person.

Even the view from the stern was amazing.

My favorite part of the excursions we took was the one in Victoria, BC. Kind of ironic that it's not part of Alaska, huh? Well, I'm more of a spring and summer kind of girl.

Here is the most beautiful garden I have ever seen in my life.

If I had this garden near me, I would visit every day.

Pin It!
